Summer Tires?

Hi Guys was just looking at getting some summer tires, when it comes to price buying south of the border would be the best case, but then there is the hassle of going there, declaring, duty , taxes, time etc.

So I looked locally for some good deals, heres what I found:

1. Simply Tire

Prices include mounting, balancing and installation for all 4 tires (taxes extra):

205-50-17 *
Hero Atlanta AR01 $420.00
Nexen CP672 90V $460.00
BF Goodrich Sport G-Force Sport 89W $520.00
Kumho Ecsta AST KU25 93H $560.00
Sumitomo HTRZ3 9Y $560.00
Falken ZE912 93W $540.00
Hankook Ventus V2 Concept H437 93V $530.00
Falken Azenis PT722 93V $550.00
Cooper Zeon RS3-A 93W $580.00
Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport 93W $570.00
Hankook Ventus H105 93W $570.00
Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110 93Y $570.00
Kumho Solus KH16 93V $590.00
Bridgestone G019 Grid 89V $610.00
Falken FK-452 93Y $610.00
Yokohama Avid Envigor 93V $630.00
Kumho Ecsta 4X KU22 93W $630.00
Yokohama Avid Ascend 93V $640.00
BF Goodrich Super Sport AS 89W $650.00
General G-Max AS03 93W $680.00

Pirelli P6 A/S 90H $680.00
Dunlop SP Sport Signature 93V $700.00
Continental PureContact $730.00
Continental Extreme DWS 93W $740.00
Toyo Versado LX 2 93V $740.00
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus $740.00
Conti Extreme Contact DW 93W $780.00
Goodyear Comfortred Touring 89V $840.00
Goodyear Assurance TripleTred AS 93V $910.00

2. Joy City Tires

Prices include mounting, balancing and installation for all 4 tires (taxes included):
(Prices shown are before rebate)

Yokohama S.Drive 93W * REBATE * * SALE * $700
Yokohama Avid Ascend 93V * REBATE * $700
Hankook H437 Ventus V2 Concept 93V $630
Continental Extreme Contact DWS 93W * REBATE * $840
General G-MAX AS-03 93W * REBATE * $770
Yokohama Avid ENVigor 93V * REBATE * $725
Hankook K110 Ventus V12 EVO 93Y $675

Prices seem reasonable for a local store and includes installation. As i have never used Hankook/Kuhmo/Toyo Im not sure what to expect, what are your experiences? Has anyone used any of these stores before?

As for the tire im looking for - nothing special just a regular summer tire that will help me get to work n back (10km round trip) and maybe a few long trips. While i dont mind sporty , i prefer the balance to be slightly towards comfy.

Are there any better deals locally?

How come max doesnt have a tire sponsor?

I've been checking locally and in the US for 20" tires and you just cannot beat the US pricing. I'm looking at savings of around 50% from local pricing which means I can put the savings into new wheels to soften the spend. Since I'll be taking a family trip shortly to the States I'll just order the tires and pick up at one of those US address depots.

Try Go For Tires in Markham... It's a rice shop, so my wife's Odyssey felt at home getting new tires. I got the impression that the techs take their work seriously AND they had unbeatable pricing.

Let us know how they compare.
